Okay New Problem. After working fine for a couple of day now it won't connect. In my Kodak AiO Home Center I get a message at the bottom left that says "Disconnected". I f I try to scan I get a box called "Choose Kodak Printer" and in that there's a box with nothing in it and two buttons one called "Rescan for Printers" which does nothing and one called "Connect Kodak Printer". That one brings up a box called "Kodak Printer Setup Utility" with the sup heading "Install Your Kodak Printer". In that box there are options for connecting with USB, WiFi, or Ethernet Cable. It also informs me that the latter two options are only available on models I don't have. I'm trying to use the USB anyway. So I select "Connect via USB Cable" and it gives me a message saying "Printer Drivers Installed Successfully" and I'm still not connected.
I go down to hidden icons on my taskbar and I see the printer icon with a red "X" through it. I double click it and I get a box called "Kodak ESP-3 AiO" That box gives me a message saying "Connecting to Printer..." which never changes.
The USB Port works, I've tested it with a flash drive. The cable looks undamaged and I've tried reconnecting both ends. I've also tried restarting my computer twice.
EDIT: Now when I choose "Connect Kodak Printer" I get the same issue from the other day where it tries to install the printer drivers and gets stuck. The only way to close that box is to choose "End Task" from the Task Manager. When I do that it gives me this message with a lot of text but it's only up for a split second and it disappears before the box closes.
EDIT,EDIT: Okay. The issue from that last edit happens if I click "Connect via USB Cable" and then plug in the cable. If I leave the cable in click "Connect via USB Cable" and the click "next" I get the message "Printer Drivers Installed Successfully".
EDIT, EDIT, EDIT I've also tried both USB ports and it won't work for either. Under Devices and Printers in the control panel there is a listing for Kodak ESP-3 AiO with a green check mark over it. When I check the Hardware Properties it says "This Device is Working Properly". Maybe it's a software issue with the home center? It worked two days ago so I'm just irritated now.
